[Watch] Danger Mouse & Daniele Luppi - "Season's Trees" Feat. Norah Jones (Video)

It was only last week that we saw the beautifully animated video for the Jack White featuring "Two Against One" which we also found out would be part of a larger project from the director of the video, Chris Milk, in relation to Luppi and Danger Mouse's LP. Today we get some visuals for the Norah Jones featuring track "Season's Trees" which is a more monochrome affair seeing the musicians sat around a piano laying down a lovely rendition of the track. Simple yet oh so effective.

Rome is out everywhere now so go grab a copy after enjoying the video.
